Look and See Better with Eyeglasses from Keelan Eye Care in Brick, NJ
After our comprehensive eye exam, you can browse through our wide assortment of designer eyeglass frames and sunglasses. Our highly experienced staff at Keelan Eye Care in Brick, NJ, will help you find the right style frame to suit the shape of your face.
Eyeglass Frame Materials
Frames are now made with revolutionary new plastics, metals, and other materials. The change in the material allows for the glasses to be worn on different occasions or accommodate for personal comfort. These materials include:
- Polycarbonate: Durable, lightweight, and perfect for active wear.
- Hypoallergenic: Titanium or stainless steel frames don’t cause skin conditions such as contact dermatitis.
- Detachable components: Instead of parts connected by screws, they snap into place.
- Flexible: Frames and spring hinges that bend make kids’ eyeglasses more durable.
- Improved nose pads: Soft and lightweight silicone nose pads hold glasses in place.
Modern Eyeglass Lenses Are Much Improved
Glasses have come a long way and there are more ways to customize them to fit your specific needs. Alterable aspects of modern glasses include:
- Aspheric: With a thinner, more pleasing profile, these lenses provide sharper peripheral vision.
- High-index plastic: Thinner, lighter, and improved ultraviolet (UV) protection.
- Wavefront technology: Visual acuity is enhanced by a design based on precise measurements of how light travels through your eye.
- Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses: Thinner, lighter, and as much as ten times more impact-resistant than regular plastic lenses. These are perfect for sports or active children.
- Photochromic lenses: These clear lenses darken in the sunlight and provide 100 percent UV protection.
- Polarized lenses: Diminishes glare from flat, reflective surfaces and also relieves eye fatigue.
- Anti-reflective coating: Reduces the glare you see and the reflections on your lenses that others see. Perfect for night driving.
- Other lens coatings: Resist scratches, prevent fogging, and block UV light.
Lenses for Presbyopia
After age forty, we increasingly need help to see close with these type lenses:
- Bifocals: Upper lens aids distance vision. Lower lens aids near vision.
- Trifocals: Has three different refraction zones for close, intermediate, and distance vision.
- Progressive lenses: Provide clear vision at all distances without a visible line.
- Variable focus lenses: A small dial on the frame adjusts refraction for clear vision at any distance. It has a larger field of view than multifocal or progressive lenses.
- Reading glasses: Single vision lenses for reading.
- Sunglasses: They make a fashion statement as they protect you from the sun’s rays.
- Plano sunglasses: Nonprescriptive lenses.
- Designer sunglasses: Often sold in optical boutiques or department stores.
- Prescription sunglasses: Eliminates the need for clip-on sunglasses.
- Kids' sunglasses: Should include impact-resistant polycarbonate or Trivex lenses to protect active children.
